Bennachin Restaurant

Venue Info

Bennachin is a shining beacon of African cuisine in the Big Easy, known most for its jama-jama and fried plantains that are sold at Jazz Fest. However, the restaurant itself is a cozy joint where you'll find the namesake dish, bennachin, a jambalaya-like stew served with sautéed spinach, and other meat and vegetable dishes that are unique to New Orleans.
